With spring break fast approaching, it鈥檚 time to stop wasting time looking up pretty destinations on聽Instagram and start finalizing your travel plans STAT. Whether you鈥檝e decided to finally take the plunge and do聽Europe on a shoestring budget or are planning a short getaway a little closer to home, we鈥檙e totally on board for anything that鈥檒l make travel planning a tad easier. That鈥檚 why we鈥檙e obsessed with these 11 spring break travel apps that handle everything from flights to pet care.


1. LoungeBuddy: Let鈥檚 be honest 鈥 spending countless hours in an overcrowded airport during spring break probably isn鈥檛 the best way to start a vacation. Luckily, this handy app makes it ridiculously easy to book a swanky lounge for you and your travel companions straight from your smartphone. Go ahead, you deserve it.

2. DogVacay: While we鈥檇 love to take Fido with us on all our epic adventures, sometimes it just isn鈥檛 feasible. Instead of leaving your pup in a crammed kennel, DogVacay gives you the option to let your fur-baby stay in a real home with a loving sitter. Heck,聽you even get daily photo or video updates from your pooch, so you know that they鈥檙e a-okay while you鈥檙e on vacay.

3. Little Peanut on the Go: If you and your partner are planning a getaway without the kiddos, this app is definitely a must-download.

4. Hopper: Looking for a great deal on your spring break flight? This awesome app actually predicts the price of future flights and tells you the best time to buy cheap fares (so you can spend more moola on souvenirs and poolside cocktails, duh).

5. Detour: Unlike the old data-less days, touring a new city doesn鈥檛 have to involve blindly following a random dude in a neon t-shirt.
